My Fair Lady! Get your tickets now for one of the most beloved musicals of all time. This Lerner and Loewe classic features some of the most unforgettable songs and characters in musical theater history.

Opening night is this Friday, September 14, at 8 PM. Don't miss this wonderful show, directed by Paul Wingar.
The Glass Menagerie! Don't miss the wonderful opportunity to participate in this classic play by the incomparable Tennessee Williams.

So come and enjoy an evening of naughty, bawdy entertainment, but please, leave the kids at home. PG-13. Show opens October 12. Get your tickets early...the Cabaret has a history of selling-out!

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our fundraising events, benefiting My Fair Lady. Between the dessert contest, and the sponsored events by Max & Erma's, bd's Mongolian Grill, and Canton Cinema, we raised over $300 to help fund costumes and hats for My Fair Lady. Your generous support has helped boost the aesthetic of this iconic show, and we are so grateful to all of you who made the events such a success! To all of you, we tip our gloriously accessorized hats! And if you'd like to see how your dollars were put to use, get your ticket today, and come see the show!
As our season gets underway, we would like to ask those involved in any shows with Spotlight Players to maintain patience and professional courtesy during the move-in and move-out process, and chaos that is typical as shows commence and close. Please be respectful of Village Theater staff, as well as the cast and crews of other shows, so that we can maintain a positive reputation amongst the theater staff, and the other groups that share this beautiful venue.
Finally, we would like to remind our general membership about the parking policies for The Village Theater and the surrounding apartment complexes. Please do not park in the area directly behind and adjacent to the scene shop doorway, nor the area directly behind and adjacent to the stage entrance doorway. Those spaces are reserved for Village Theater staff, and apartment residents.

Announcement of Kroger Fundraiser
Now you can help Spotlight Players just by doing something we all like to do.....shop. We have linked with Kroger for a program that when you swipe your Kroger Member Rewards Card at the Kroger checkout, a portion of your sales will go into an account and Spotlight will receive those funds. If you have a Kroger card (If you don't you can get one from any Kroger Service Desk) and then register your card at krogercommunityrewards.com and once you have logged into the web site, click the link for "My Account". Scroll to the bottom of your screen, and select Community Rewards and you can either enter our NPO Number (90863) or do a word search for Spotlight. Hope you will sign up and help us out. If you have trouble, let us know and we will help you out.
